Tasting Notes

Meaning "old fashioned" (paleokerisio), this sparkling revives the well-known traditional semi-sparkling wine of the region. Local Debina, Vlahiko, and Bekari grapes go through skin contact before fermentation, resulting a light amber orange color. Off-dry charming sparkling with flavors of baked pear/apple, orange peels, and mountain spices.

Staff Pick Notes

This wine has a cult following in the way that people ask for it by name. It’s the kind of wine you hear whispered into ears, hummed, audible smiles crawl across faces when it is finally cradled in one’s glass. Unique in numerous ways: it’s from Greece, it’s orange in color, it’s semi-sparkling, it’s semi-dry. The "Paleokerisio" Dom. Glinavos has the ability to make you feel special, like you have unlocked the secret to the wine world. It makes you feel like you will never touch a lousy bottle of California Cab or chardonnay ever again. You are now beyond that, for now you are sophisticated. You drink Greek orange wine for god’s sake! Aromas of nutmeg and clove, sun-soaked apricots, buttery Georgia peaches, yellow raspberries. Orange jelly
